As Minnesotans stay home in an effort to keep our entire community safe as concerns regarding COVID-19 grow and on the heels of the state’s emergency closing of restaurants’ dine-in offerings, the hospitality industry is left with few patrons, an abundance of food, and teams without work. With a dash of innovation and a generous helping of creativity, Minnesota’s Central Kitchen is open for business.
Second Harvest Heartland is teaming up with three local restaurants; Alma, Bachelor Farmer and Chowgirls to make to-go meals for anyone that needs it. These restaurants have plenty of food that will go to waste if not used, and the kitchen space to prepare meals safely. Using a take-out approach, these meals will then delivered to hunger-relief programs.
